5 track ep of glorious minimal electronics in an IDM vein from hometaping. If you love Four Tet, Emvelope Nine etc this is for you.
After many months of sourcing recordings and samples of tape hiss, static, interference and feedback with expensive mics and stuff in an attempt to lend his songs an appropriate level of 'graininess', hometaping abandoned these efforts and instead commissioned a huge machine to be built and programmed with tons of matrices and logorhythms, all designed to synthesise the 'realest' rough edges ever known. To the casual listener, hometaping's methods could be mistaken for being 'lo-fi' - amateurish, even. In actual fact, nothing could be further from the truth. A lot of time, effort and money has gone into perfecting the imperfections on these songs. Any tinny beats, crunchy noises or faulty flows on his records are entirely meant to be there and ought to be appreciated fully. Please do not take the mistakes on his music for granted, but instead appreciate the poignantly flawed crystalline beauty of these songs in the same way you would a scratched John Michel Jarre LP or a model with scars or something
